Is senior year too late for extracurriculars

Hey, I'm a bit stressed because I haven't done many extracurricular activities, and I'm about to enter my senior year. Is it too late to join some clubs or get involved now? Will it help my college applications even if I start late?

No worries! It's never too late to get involved in extracurriculars. Senior year is still a good opportunity to explore new interests and demonstrate your dedication to a particular activity or club. Colleges appreciate seeing a student developing their character and skills, even if they start in their final year of high school.

While it's true that colleges may be more impressed with long-term participation in an activity, any involvement can still make a positive impact on your application. It's all about making the most of your time and showing your passion for the activities you choose to engage in.So, go ahead and join those clubs or participate in activities that interest you. It's better to try something late than to never try at all!
